Summary

Step off the sidewalk and back in time to the glamorous twenties. Explore the backdrop of that romantic and high living era by joining NYC tour guide Deborah Zelcer of the Municipal Art Society Tour program to view magnificent period lobbies in buildings including "30 Rock", the Fred F. French Building, the Chanin building and the iconic Chrysler building. These opulent landmarks are local place markers in the chronology of architectural form. Learn about the frenzied one-upsmanship that bred the 1920's race to build the tallest building in the world, and the colorful characters that competed in it, forever transforming the skyline of New York and creating a vivid new language of architectural style. Meeting Location: Uptown Rest Stop, Waldorf Astoria, SE corner of 50th Street and Park Avenue
